Proper Officer and Responsible Finance Officer to Howden Town Council

Howden Town Council

Sarah took over as the new Town Clerk at the beginning of August 2020.

I have lived in Howden for more than 20 years, enjoying careers at the Press Association as TV Listings Supervisor, the Shire Hall as the Venue and Events Manager and more recently at Howden Infant School as the School Business Manager.
I made the move to Howden Town Council as I have a real passion for the town, I am excited to have some part in continuing to make Howden the lovely place it is to live and the varied aspects to the role will continue to challenge me.
I am currently studying for a Local Government qualification which I hope will help me develop the role even further.
